As-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah

A beautiful story… please read and see what lessons can be drawn from it.

“Ibn ‘Umar (radhi’Allahu `anhu) reports that the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) once sent out an army unit which included a man called Hudayr. It was a year of difficulty and food was in short supply, so the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) gave each person provisions (for the journey) but he forgot to provide for Hudayr.

Hudayr was patient and went out with the last group, seeking reward and expecting good from Allah, saying “‘La ilaha illa’Allah’ (There is none worthy of worship except Allah), ‘Allahu Akbar’ (Allah is the Greatest), ‘Al-Hamdulillah’ (Praise be to Allah), ‘Subhan’Allah’(Glory be to Allah), and ‘La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah’ (There is no might or power except with Allah).” And he would say, “This is the best of provisions, O Lord.”

As-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah

The latest book that has blown me away is Shaykh Sa’id ‘Abd al-‘Adhim’s amazing compilation: ‘al-Atqiya’ al-Akhfiya’. I was casually reading through some of its chapters this evening when I came across some quotes which I thought to share (now and in the near future insha’Allah). Below are a couple of quotes from two great personalities in our history:

The advice of Ja’far ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Ali (rahimahullah) to his son:

“O my son, accept my advice and commit my statement to memory, for if you do so, you shall live in happiness and die in a praiseworthy state. O my son, whoever is content with what Allah has portioned out for him, will be rich, and whoever looks to what lies in the hands of others, will die impoverished, and whoever is not pleased with what Allah has portioned out for him, ends…

Subhan’Allah May Allah grant us husn al-dhann (good opinion of others).

As-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah

I read somewhere that one of the Tabi’in once said to his companion,

“My heart no longer leans towards so-and-so.” His friend then replied, “Me neither, but what do you know, perhaps Allah has blotted out our hearts so we no longer have love for the righteous people.”

Subhan’Allah… husn al-dhann (good opinion of others).

Sometimes, a person will mistakenly begin to look down upon another and harbour bad thoughts and feelings against them. But they don’t realise that perhaps this is a righteous person and one favoured by Allah and the reality is that it is their heart which has become blotted and has thus turned away from the Salihin.

This is a very thought-provoking statement as it shows the importance of husn al-dhann, looking at things positively and in a reflective manner, and not raising one’s self above another in any way.

May Allah…
